COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE – JANUARY 2021

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THE BEST IN 2021


Shipping Update

We are now seeing improvements in our shipping times. However, things are not yet back to normal and there are still some delays occurring.

Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may potentially take an additional 2 – 4 weeks to arrive, depending on the source country of your order. Shipments from the United Kingdom and Canada are generally quicker than from other countries.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These delays are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: We have resumed our normal 30-Day Shipping Guarantee. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our call center hours of operation are 6:00 am – 9:00 pm Central Time on Monday to Friday, and 7:00 am – 7:00 pm Central Time on Saturday and Sunday.

What Accupril is and what it is used for

Accupro contains quinapril, which is one of a group of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. ACE inhibitors work by widening blood vessels in the body, which can reduce the pressure in the vessels. Accupro is used to treat high blood pressure, or to help treat heart failure. You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse

How to take Accupril

The recommended dose of Accupro is: Adults For treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) the starting dose is usually 10 mg a day, which may be increased gradually up to a maximum of 80 mg a day. For the treatment of heart failure, if you are also taking water tablets (diuretics) to treat your high blood pressure, you are aged 65 or over, or you have kidney disease, the starting dose is usually 2.5 mg, which may be increased up to a maximum of 40 mg a day. Accupro tablets should be taken either once or twice a day. Whatever dose you have been prescribed, follow your doctor's instructions exactly and never change the dose yourself. The tablets can be taken with or without food. Swallow the tablets whole with water. Do not chew, divide or crush the tablets. The score line is only there to help you break the tablet if you have difficulty swallowing it whole. Use in children and adolescents Accupro should not be used in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. If you take more Accupro than you should Taking too many tablets at once may make you unwell. Tell your doctor or go to your nearest hospital casualty department immediately. Take along any tablets that are left, the packaging and the label so that the hospital staff can easily tell what medicine you have taken. If you forget to take Accupro If you forget to take a dose, miss out the forgotten dose completely and take the next dose at the normal time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. If you stop taking Accupro Do not stop taking your tablets or alter the dose you are currently taking without seeing your doctor first. It is important to keep taking your tablets as they help to control your blood pressure. Do not wait until your tablets are finished before seeing your doctor.
